What a brilliant day. Thanks to Yorkshire Dales Guides for making it all possible. Dave was just brilliant in keeping as all postive, leading and helping us all. His knowledge was brilliant. Could not recommend these guys enough. Even join us in the pub after.

Wanted to do something different on our week in the Dales and this fitted the bill perfectly. Our guide Dave pushed, squeezed and splashed us down through the caves and despite our trepidation gave us masses of encouragement. A really memorable experience.
